about this workshop

This weekend class is open to woodworkers of all skill levels. CNC experience is helpful but not required. The class is a hands-on workshop providing students an introduction to a variety of rotary 4th axis CNC techniques. The class will cover rotary project set up including fluting, spiral cutting, and 3D models in the round. Students will each produce at least one rotary project during the weekend. Most of the class time will be spent designing and machining projects but will also cover a variety of technical and design tips and tricks that student can apply to their class projects or future work.
